    I have been working at Blue Rhino full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for. ESOP is top notch. Supervisors are easy to work for as well. Our busy season is approximately 3 months where you really busy your hump in the summer. Then we only work 3 days a week 14 hour shifts.

    Cons

    This occupation requires heavy repetitive lifting while making deliveries in all elements of weather. The summer can be challenging and you need to stay hydrated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving forward with the company. Always try to find ways to improve. Otherwise, if you remain stagnet, your competition will pass you by on the road to excellence.

    I worked at Blue Rhino full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, competitive salary and flexible schedule. I really enjoyed working here when I first started a few years ago.

    Cons

    Company is very poorly managed from the top to the bottom. Management does not seem to care about employees or customers and it is no wonder that the company is struggling.

    Advice to Management

    If you cared more about your customers and employees instead of your own salary then the company might turn around

    I worked at Blue Rhino full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of time to converse with others.
    Multiple breaks (one 30 min break).
    A degree of flexibility.

    Cons

    The boss can make or break the warehouse. In my case it was the latter. The boss would not turn the heat on until it was below 6 degrees, furthermore if it was a 99 degree type of day you just have to deal with it. I suppose this was done to save money, but it's not very fun trying to pick up a 180 lb box with frozen hands.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to voice their opinions a little more to help strengthen the work environment. The employees would not feel like they are unimportant.

    I have been working at Blue Rhino full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The job consists of delivering 20lb propane tanks to Wal-Mart, Lowe's, etc. Other tasks include maintaining display signage, observing NFPA standards, installing new setups, and communicating with customers regarding questions/concerns. A standard trailer holds 504 tanks, but can be loaded with more if very high demand is expected. The standard driver's schedule is 3 14-hour days on, 4 days off. This allows amazing latitude in planning short vacations & working on personal projects. The work itself can indeed be grueling, especially when it is 100 degrees out, but that is intrinsic to the work. During peak (Memorial Day, July 4, storms, etc) times, more hours, up to 67.5 in a 5 day period are scheduled. Vacation is discouraged between Memorial Day & Labor Day, but I have never had a summer time off/schedule adjustment request denied. The overtime in summer is epic, but the winter can be tough, with 20 hour weeks not uncommon. True, it is a very taxing job, especially when dealing with adverse weather, traffic, difficult parking, less than ideal customers. I look at it this way- Blue Rhino pays me to represent the company for 14 hours, so that is what I do. Life is too short to get upset about the little stuff. I basically get paid to work out & chat with people, interspersed with scenic drives. New England is idyllic, so that does color my perspective. One last thing- expectations are clearly laid out, there are no surprises about responsibilities, etc.

    Cons

    The same as with any corporation - the parent company does indeed treat employees as a number. Dealing with the repercussions of our poor customer service can be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within- some of your drivers have advanced degrees, and already know the business, especially the most important aspect- customer service!
